      Make the marinade: whisk the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons olive oil, Worcester sauce, miso, and 1 minced garlic clove together in a large bowl.

    • 2

      Trim the steak and slice into 1 inch-wide strips, then submerge in the marinade, turning to coat evenly. Marinate for 1 hour.

    • 3

      While the steak marinates, bring 3 cups of salted water to a boil. Add the barley and simmer, covered, for 35-40 minutes or until the barley is tender. Drain any excess water and reserve.

    • 4

      Heat 1/4 cup oil until shimmering in a large, high-sided skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Stir in half the mushrooms and sprinkle with kosher salt. Cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes to allow the mushrooms to brown before flipping. Cook for 3 minutes more, then remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining 1/4 cup oil and mushrooms.

    • 5

      Return all the mushrooms to the pan and add 4 cloves garlic and spinach. Cook, stirring, until the spinach is just wilted, then add the barley.

    • 6

      Heat a cast iron skillet or steel sauté pan over high heat until searing hot. Remove the steak from the marinade, shaking gently to remove excess, then cook in batches -- about 2-3 minutes per side for medium rare to medium.

    • 7

      Let the steak rest for a minute or two before serving over the barley and vegetables.
